    thats awsome, i know where that is… its like a 2 day drive from my house lol. im so excited i cant wait to pack hehe

  • 18 May 2007 keerah said


    2 day drive, seriously? haha well at least you’re closer than i am! I KNOW im soo excited to pack too…kinda crazy i leave for france 2 weeks from today! (June 1). After im done school I think i get into London on July 2 in the afternoon sometime. Its gonna be so hard to pack for 7 weeks and be under that weight limit haha eek!

  • 19 May 2007 NIKSaus said


    i know im so scared about the weight limit cause i dont like leaving anything behind…just incase… lol. what are u going to study in france? that sounds like fun. yeah im getting into london on june 29 so i can spend a few days looking around first. r u spending anytime in athens after? i think im staying an extra 3 days.

    Im doing my elementary education degree at University of Alberta here, and french is my minor, so im taking 2 french classes there. Its gonna be crazy cause im staying with a host family…so that should be interesting haha. Yeah im staying one extra day in athens, mostly just cause of the way flights worked out. If i wanted to fly out the 17th i would miss the tour of the acropolis and stuff so i didn’t want to miss that. I fly out the 18th sometime. At least it gives me an extra evening! 3 days is sweet i kinda wish i was staying there longer! Greece is going to be sooooo nice!

    that sounds like fun. yeah i know i cant wait, cept 2 of my friends r over there now and their still wearing jumpers lol so hopfully it warms up in the next couple of weeks cause i was only going to take summer clothes.

  • 23 May 2007 keerah said


    haha well i leave next friday so if i have access to a computer (im sure i will) i’ll give you a shout and let you know how the weather is! Im taking mostly summer clothes though, just a couple sweatshirts and 2 pairs of jeans probably. You can always layer if its cold haha. Even if its cold there now though our tour is still a full month away…so there is lots of time for the weather to get warm!!

  • 24 May 2007 NIKSaus said


    haha yes thats very true. that would be awsome, i was thinking the same for clothes. were moving into winter and it still feels like summer, so im going to have next to no winter this year lol. a month still feels like forever away!

  • 28 May 2007 keerah said


    Yeah, a month seems so far away… i leave in 4 days though haha so im totally excited!I haven’t really been on the computer cause im so busy trying to get everything ready!! I was looking at the weather for Greece and stuff and its 30Celcius there right now…so thats wicked. We’ll get nice tans! Only 16Celcius in Paris right now haha, hopefully it warms up by Saturday!!
